Finally found a bow that I was looking for, for quite a while. Ben Pearson 956 takedown. 66” long, 53@28. Maple core and you can’t beat green glass. It’s a bit of a departure for me, it’s not the type of bow I usually shoot, but I’ve always admired them.
The bow is in great shape for being over 60 years old. Quick clean up, and twisted a new Flemish twist string, since the string that come supplied with it was at least 2 inches too short. Think that may explain the markings on the side plates? Thanks to Lance for the advice for the correct brace height.
The original plastic case was quite deteriorated, so I’ve made an acrylic template to make a leather case when time permits. Until then, I’ve found a secure home for her..

Started a new winter project. Worked on logos for a new case for my Pearson 956. I am digitizing the pattern for the bow case, it will be made out of leather, hand stitched, and laser engraved ;-)
